Art / Science Collisions
Settings and Form
Identify the setting and form you want to design for
A Postcard to My Two Mothers is designed for a gallery space. The sculptures themselves will be 3D printed from a ZCorp RP printer using powder and glue.
Identify at least one good (or not so good) example that could be applied to your own data presentation
1. Dimensional Typography (http://books.google.com/books?id=iQdxUF3hPrMC&dq=dimensional+typography&pg=PP1&ots=yA6X8YPeC8&sig=Zb7LhiJrdG3mhexUfceWiHZ82xk&hl=en&prev=http://www.google.com/search?q=dimensional+typography&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&sa=X&oi=print&ct=title&cad=one-book-with-thumbnail)
2. Peter Cho’s thesis work (acg.media.mit.edu/people/pcho/thesis/index.html)
3. Typographic sculpture (http://www.ricbellnthat.co.uk/)
4. Takenobu Igarashi (http://jacksonwang.net/2006/10/23/takenobu-igarashi/)
Give examples of how this setting and format might relate to the information needs and desires of audiences in your setting.
The form and setting for A Postcard to My Two Mothers is meant to lift words off of the 2D space and into the tangible world. Moreover, the words and letterforms themselves (in their stretched, deformed form) are meant to evoke the meaning encompassed in the words that are portrayed. The setting will allow the space the work needs to be viewed.
Share and get feedback on your draft production plan
The production plan is the following:
1. Create drawings of sculptures on paper
2. Transfer those drawings to photoshop / illustrator.
3. Import illustrator documents to maya / isosurf.
4. Make into 3D the 2D illustrator drawings.
5. Print 3D rendering.
6. Hang explosion and morph sculpture and arrange encounter sculpture
7. Set up proper lighting / spacing between the work.
